How to Deal with

PRIOR AUTHORIZATION

Health Insurance Companies like to make our lives (Patients and Doctors) Difficult. One of the many ways they do this by requiring Prior Authorizations for Medications.

Why do Insurance Companies require Prior Authorizations?

How does the Prior Authorization Process Work?

1. The Pharmacy Notifies Me by using an ONLINE Service called:
CoverMyMeds.Com
that is the fastest way.  CVS is the only pharmacy chain that refuses to use this method. Which results in more delays for you.
2. We do not call Insurance Companies.  Why?  Have you called your lately? How long did you wait, 15,20, 40 min? Exactly
3. The slower method is: You go to your Insurance Company Website, download a Prescription Prior Authorization Form, (PDF File) and send it to me by email.
